Alois Kronschlaeger’s work exists at the intersection of art, architecture, fashion and design. In this public lecture he will discuss SPIRE, a massive public installation spanning three floors of of an abandoned commercial building hosted by SiTE:LAB in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Combining elements of biomorphic and geometric abstraction, Alois Kronschlaeger will create a giant spire composed entirely of aluminum mesh, wood and poured paint. The work will look and feel as if it were sprouting from the basement, growing through the space and eventually shooting through the roof awakening the building with new life. In this lecture he will discuss the project in dialogue with Anita Glesta, coordinator of Reconfiguring Site: New Approaches to Public Art and Architecture.
This lecture is presented in association with Cristin Tierney Gallery
